Shopify buy buttons in WP...

Shopify buy buttons in WP... was created by gilles
HI folks, I have a bit of a quandary.

I have a client with a WP wooCommerce site. They'd like to switch to Shopify but alas the Shopify themes are too restrictive (without hiring one of their coders to modify it extensively to suit the client's needs = prohibitive).

Therefore, I'd like to entertain using the "Shopify Buy Buttons". This allows one to use embed Shopify code on any WP page to create a buy-now button. The entire checkout/purchase is then handled by Shopify.

docs.shopify.com/manual/more/buy-button/add-embed-code

If we were to go this route, which WP plugin would you recommend as a "catalog" to use to organize/display the various products/groups? I would then add Shopify buy-now code to these cataloged products.

I hope you can suggest a possible solution(s) given the above,
Cheers,
Gilles

Hi Gilles,

Since they are using WooCommerce already and are familiar with it, just turn it into the catalog :)
wordpress.org/plugins/woocommerce-catalog/

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any questions and we'll be glad to answer.

Kind regards,
Nick

Thanks Nick.
I'm reconsidering this as the maintenance could be a nightmare given that the store offers a myriad of products.

What do you think of the approach of having two separate sites. One for the blog/marketing (WP), the other, the store, on Shopify (store.mydmoain.com)?
I look forward to your views,
Gilles

That sounds fine too. Certainly it's a lot less maintenance, which is great!

Kind regards,
